Wizard allows you understand and visualize how your network is behaving, which
can ease your networking concerns should issues arise.
This wizard allows you
(the Administrative user) to troubleshoot issues that occur during specific
time frames, which can be designated by selecting two endpoints. For example,
you may have two endpoints that are having intermittent packet loss but you
don't understand why. Through the troubleshooting GUI, you can evaluate the
issue so that you can effectively resolve it rather than logging onto each
machine that you suspect to be causing this faulty behavior.
Since you may want to
revisit the session later, you should give the session a unique name. You may
also choose to use a pre-configured test. You can debug from endpoint to
endpoint, or from an internal or external endpoint, or from an external to an
Further, you can
define a time window in which you want to perform the debug. The
Troubleshooting GUI allows you to enter a source and destination endpoint for
the endpoints you are looking for. You can do this with a MAC, IPv4, or IPv6
address and then select by tenant. You also have the option to generate a
troubleshooting report that can be sent to TAC.
The following section
describes the topology of the Troubleshooting Wizard, which is a simplified
view of the fabric with only the elements that are relevant to your two
endpoints under inspection.
